Support your employees for a more productive business.
It’s no secret that a happy workforce is a productive workforce, and an employee assistance plan (otherwise known as an EAP) is a way to help staff cope with mental health, emotional issues, and other related issues that could affect their performance. These could include relationship problems, bereavement, substance addiction, or other stressful situations.
Employee counseling and support session solutions.
At its simplest, an employee assistance program (EAP) involves an independently operated telephone support line. More comprehensive programs can pay for confidential counseling and other support sessions for staff and their families.
Includes programs that can unlock the full potential of employees.
In addition to helping your employees, such programs can reduce absenteeism and cases of low morale and stress that would typically restrict the employee’s ability to work to their full potential. Some plans even let employers ask for advice on dealing with stressed staff.
Unique plans with a variety of options available.
It’s important to keep in mind that the legal ramifications of employee assistance plans (EAPs) will differ depending on whether the plan directly offers counseling, similar treatment, or if it merely offers referrals.
